"No Valentines for this Derby Girl. I'm gonna give somebody a Big Derby Bruise/BootyBlock today to make up for it! :D"
To which my Mother replied:
"considering how much like your grandmother you are, it surprises me that you have not yet copied her with this little matter: she always pruchased herself a gift for those days like birthdays, valentines and christmas ---- that is how she came to have all those jewellery and scarves and she did have a fair number of purses and shoes!!!!"
So, in honor of my late-and much loved- Grand Mother, I'm going shopping today!
Happy Valentines Day to ME!
*and to you, Ouma, sitting on your cloud, smiling down on me. Thank you., you are the reason I bacame a strong successful woman, and can stand strong alone on my own two feet*
